Simplicity Remains the Rule in Bifurcation Stenting

Provisional main branch (MB) stenting is the current recommended strategy in bifurcation lesions. The TRYTON study is the latest study to compare a strategy of bifurcation stenting using a dedicated bifurcation stent with provisional stenting of the MB. TRYTON has shown similar target vessel failure rates and binary restenosis rates at 9 months follow-up.

Ischemic Lesions Post CAS Not Innocent Bystanders

The clinical significance of ischemic brain lesions following carotid artery stenting (CAS) is unknown. The MRI sub-study of the International Carotid Stenting Study has indicated that ischemic brain lesions post CAS is a marker of recurrent cardiovascular events over a 4.1 years follow-up.

Autonomic Dysfunction Post Thoracic Irradiation

The clinical impact of thoracic irradiation (TI) upon exercise capacity and CV mortality in Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) survivors is unknown. A study of 263 HL survivors has indicated that TI is associated with elevated resting heart rate and abnormal heart rate recovery both of which were associated with reduced exercise capacity. Abnormal heart rate recovery was found to be associated with increased all-cause mortality.

Importance of BP Lowering Across the CV Spectrum in Type II DM

BP control has been one of the fundamental aspects of diabetes management. A meta-analysis of 40 trials has indicated that each 10-mmHg lower systolic BP may be associated with lower risk of mortality, CV events, coronary heart disease, stroke, albuminuria, and retinopathy.
